lets leave those fashions where they belong. This goes for choppped Nortons as well.
Nortons in general are not "fashionable", they are from the seventies!, so why do we ride them? If we all wanted to be fashionable we'd be ridng the lastest Italian, jap machine or even a Harley, no difference between a chop and a cafe' racer, apart from certain cycle part features, both 60's -70's fashions, so why does one seem ok to do but not the other?
Most of motorcycling is about individuality and being a bit different, if it wasn't we'd all be just as well sitting in one of the square boxes with a wheel at each corner and blend in nicely with the masses as they do their daily trudge to work.
There may or may not be bits of the bike I like when it's finished, but it is chopped850's bike and he should do it in a way that is right for him.
